Fourth quarter the difference for West Lafayette in victory over Lafayette Jeff

February 17, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



For just over three quarters, the boys basketball battle between Lafayette Jeff and West Lafayette was a tossup at Bill Berberian Gymnasium.

In the end, it was West Lafayette’s defense and Lafayette Jeff’s inability to close out a game that led to a 53-42 victory for the Red Devils Saturday night.

After battling back from a seven-point halftime deficit, the Bronchos outscored West Lafayette 16-11 in the third quarter to trail by just two going into the final eight minutes. The Bronchos’ Devin Haney hit a bucket with 6:34 left to play to finally pull Jeff even at 35-35.

Nai Carlisle answered with a three-point play at the 5:52 mark to give West Lafayette a 38-35 lead. Darian Collins canned two free throws for Lafayette Jeff to make it 38-37 with 4:21 left. From then on, it was all West Side.

It started with a Caleb Smith bucket, followed by a steal and layup by Carlisle to put West Side up 42-37. West Lafayette would stretch its lead to nine before Jeff finally got two free throws by Haney, making it 46-39 with 1:52 left. Another 8-0 run by West Lafayette made it 53-39 with 30 seconds left. Quarin Hood knocked down a 3 for the Bronchos in the final seconds.

“I was really pleased with the energy we played with in the fourth quarter,” West Lafayette coach David Wood said. “We hang our hats on defense. That is something that has been very solid for us.”

Carlisle, who led West Lafayette with 19 points, spearheaded the fourth-quarter rally, accounting for nine points and getting layups off turnovers.

“I just wanted to hustle and play for my team,” Carlisle said. “They play for me and we played really hard. This is definitely a good win for us against a good team. We just have to keep going from here.”

This wasn’t the first time Lafayette Jeff coach Scott Radeker has watched his team lose a close game in the fourth quarter.

“It has been a trend for us,” Radeker said. “We came out and played a really nice third quarter. The kids competed really hard and then, the fourth quarter, we didn’t hit shots and our execution went down the tubes at both ends of the floor. This has happened in four or five games this year. We have to be mentally tough enough to get over the hump and finish the job in the fourth.

We wanted to win the third quarter and we reached that goal. And then we told them if we win the fourth quarter by three points, we win the game. We just need to get it done.”

In the fourth quarter, the Bronchos had only two field goals and turned the ball over four times. West Lafayette, which attempted just six shots from the field in the third quarter, was 5 of 7 from the field and hit 8 of 16 free throws in the fourth quarter.

“We really came out big in the fourth quarter,” said Trev Parker, who scored 17 points for West Side. “We were more aggressive and had a lot more energy. The layups off steals really sparked us.”

Although West Lafayette (10-4) had a decided height advantage, Wood was pleased his team won the battle on the boards 30-21, with William Mbongo pulling down 10.

“They are very athletic,” Wood said. “The thing I am most pleased with is that we outrebounded them by nine. As small as they are, they are a very good rebounding team.”

Hood led the Bronchos (4-12) with 13 points and David Hanyard added 11.
